    decoWriting is like exercise. You never want to do it until you get started. Making time for the gym and getting there is usually the hardest part.

    The writing process feels similar to me. In both cases, it helps to imagine how I’ll feel if I don’t do it. Which of course, turns out to be worse than just doing it.

    When I want to get to an early yoga class, I lay out my stuff the night before. In the morning, I see the stack of clothes and the towel and feel obligated because I’ve already made a slight effort.

    That’s the key to my writing. If I make just the slightest effort to get something started, it quickly takes on a life of its own. If I overthink it, well then it takes longer and is more painful.

    photo 2How can I make sure that students read my blog this term? I can’t. But using an endearing pet photo might draw a few more readers than usual.

    This is my dog Howard. Hi “Howie.”

    His steady gaze is meant to both encourage and prompt students in my J452 class to start blogging in response to the kernels listed below. To find out more about our blogging assignment click here.


If you share an interest in public relations, media and visual design, this might be a good place for you to hang out. I started this blog to exchange ideas with my students at the University of Oregon. They keep me (and maybe you too) at the forefront of social media, visual communication and career development. Here you'll find our best ideas, links and learning as we write, create and blog our way through a course on Strategic PR Communication.
